when it comes to pulling the lever in the polling booth, did the representative help the economy? but there is the other side of the debate who vote only on gun rights, and that will be driving their votes and that's what people are responsive to. that's why single issue politics can triumph like it did today. >> john: you're right until someone they love is shot in the face by one of those illegal guns that they care so much about. tim dickinson thank thank you for coming on the show and your continued writing on this. >> absolutely. >> john: if you saw the news on the boston marathon you know that they had a suspect, he was arrested but ten he wasn't. it's been a confusing day. we'll clean up all the details for you coming up next. >> john: there may an break through in the investigation of the bomb,ing attack at the boston marathon. investigators led by the fbi are reportedly found images in a veins video that shows a possible suspect carrying and then perhaps dropping a black backpack similar to the shredded remains of a backpack believed to have held one of two pressure cook
they want in a bill. but if we meet in the middle, can do a lot of good for and for our economy. and so we're feeling very good about this. things are moving in a very, very good way. and the president's support of our proposal, even though he wouldn't fully agree with it, it's just the right place to be, because we want lots of support even from people who agree with every single part. i don't want to give you the impression he is grudging about it. he is enthusiastic about us getting a bill done and as i have said before, playing it just right. moving us forward, but giving us the space to come up with our agreement. and i thanked him and john thanked him for doing that and he is going to continue to do that so we can get a bill done. >> we briefed the president on a number of details, our proposal that the gang of eight is coming up that we will be bringing forward in the united states senate in as short a time as this evening. the president is supportive of the process we went through. the president having been in the senate and having seen this process before is very supportive. the p
tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families, and damage our economy. now it looks increasingly like the fertilizer plant that exploded last wednesday may have been a preventible tragedy. according to reuters, the plant had been storing more than 1300 times the amount of ammonium nitrate fertilizer that would normally alert the u.s. department of homeland security to a possible safety oversight. that's 100 times more than the amount of ammonium nitrate used in the oklahoma city bombing. remembertive thompson from mississippi and a ranking member of the house committee on homeland security released a statement saying, quote, it seems this manufacturer was willfully off the grid. yet we understand the department of homeland security did not even know the plant existed until it blew up. i strongly believe if the proper safeguards were in place, the loss of life and destruction could have been far less extensive. while many of the initial mist relatives boston quickly appeared to come into focus, in texas, we're left mostly with unanswered questions. first and foremost,
. as far as the increased crossing of the border, i think part of it has to do with the economy. part of it has to do with sequestration. anyone who came after december 31st, 2011, will not be eligible for this legalized status and eventual path to citizenship. i want to thank chuck schumer for coming to the border and seeing it and seeing the immensity of the problem. frankly, being an advocate for arizona and border control. people are skeptical, jake, because we promised them so many times that we would control the border. now we have made improvements as chuck just said. but we're a long way from there and the drugs are still flowing, too, which is another issue that we're going to have to face as a nation as well because there is still a big demand for them as you know. >> all right. senators mccain and schumer, thank you so much. we'll have you back on "the lead" to talk more about this. we appreciate your time. we're still waiting for the fbi press conference at 5:00 p.m. eastern when we expect to learn more on the investigation into monday's terrorist attacks here in boston. c
of the taliban, they're also very concerned about the economy post 2014 and their ant to seek proper employment. the chairman has outlined that we have eight million that are in school today. the issue is that we raised expectations and those expectations will have to be met with an economy that will support adequate jobs. >> as we look towards the end of 2014 is there a detailed transition plan with the state department and with u.s. a.i.d. for many of the projects that much begun and many that are on the books, where do those projects go as we look forward? >> senator, it is a very detailed transition process. we established a headquarters joust to oversee transition. we're completely overlinked with the a.i.d. and u.s. state department. not only do we have a broad transition plan from every task and we've taken that down to a handful of tasks that still remain to be worked out but every project that's out there right now will have a detailed transition plan as well. >> you mentioned before about security zones in the country, areas that are safer than others. as you look forward to the next
it is desperate times, bring desperate acts. >> stephanie: rush limbaugh tried to say it is the obama economy. obviously somebody is frustrated because it is a bad economy. >> to your point us, everyone feels their home pain more so than they do others. i am certain that in other countries where the bombings happen regularly there is a certain amount of shrugging going on when they happen on our soil because they've experienced them so harshly. and not by americans acting upon them. their own local sectarian violence creates these kind of situations and when they look at -- were it to be homegrown in our case, they would say this is something we deal with. you're going to feel your home pain more so than you're ever going to understand. that's natural. the question -- >> stephanie: richard -- we were talking about george bush saying i'm comfortable with my decisions about the iraq war which, of course was his response to 9-11. >> he didn't make any. >> stephanie: but the point is, i think it was just yesterday there was some bomb that killed zillions more people in iraq than -- so you're righ

private initiative to the economy, and reagan realized that. you don't find out about this at the reagan library but reagan met with gorbachev at reykjavik, famously, and the two almost agreed to nuclear disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay.
will provide to our country, to our economy, to our security. and we agree with those, coauthors of the legislation in the senate who have made the point in recent days that enhancing our security is one of the reasons why we should press forward with comprehensive immigration reform. >> senator rand paul, republican from kentucky joins us now. you heard jay carney's answer there, is he ignoring or dismissing your concerns? >> well, i'm not sure they are make attention to what i'm asking. i think there needs to be a significant part of of the debate over immigration reform needs to be over national security. i'm not even saying delay it, i'm just saying make it mart of the debate. that may mean that the debate takes longer. we had two refugees admitted, the same way these brothers were admitted to my town, bowling green, kentucky even, an, and they were accused of buying missiles, and having tp-fps on an exploded ied several years before they were admitted. we are not doing enough scrutiny on student visas and refugee talents. press canceled a program where 25 countries were targ
